ARTIST BIO

CATHERINE FITZGERALD

Artist

Catherine Fitzgerald was born raised and resides in Melbourne, Victoria. An accomplished self-taught Watercolourist and Oil painter, with over twenty years experience as a professional artist. She is known for her unique style and use of colour, which reflects her goal of painting with spontaneous personal expression and not through the influence of others.

Catherine describes her painting as harmonic, as is music to others. Her works are colourful realistic expressions, which sometimes combine an element of a contemporary nature. She paints from the heart; her colours and subjects reflect her personal feelings about places and life.

On one of her trips to Europe Catherine was captivated with the Provincial and Tuscan areas, in particular their architecture and lifestyle. Her obsession with these regions is constantly being revisited through her paintings.

Catherine has won numerous awards over the years. These include awards by reputable judges such as Sir William Dargie, Jon Dwyer of Sothebys, Colin Johnston from the Victorian Artists Society, Paul Fitzgerald AM, and Sue Nattress AO from the National Gallery of Victoria. One award winning painting was selected to become part of the Queen’s collection in 2001.

Catherine is often asked to demonstrate and judge at exhibitions and has had her painting method outlined in the Australian Artist Magazine. She has also held solo and group exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney. Her works are held in private and public collections here and internationally.
